Click the link below to read about a pretty nasty piece of work against our birds. I found this on Alan Tilmouth's website, and in Alan's own words....'Another good example of what still goes on here in the NE' thanks for sharing this Alan.
On a lighter and much more interesting note here are a couple of excellent examples of wildlife photography...
Lapwing Chick. Brian Rafferty.
A truly superb piece of photography by BR having caught this image at Abbeystead - doesn't just twitch and tick birds this man - whilst on the quest to see/photograph Dotterel very early one morning. If it was down to me to put a title to this picture it would certainly be....'New life on a new day'....thanks for this Brian.
Duckling's. Paul Baker.
Another superb image of new life in nature with my thanks to Paul over there in BC Canada.
Hopefully I should get a couple of hours birding in tomorrow.
